For its second edition, SPASA (Street Performing Arts Summer Academy in Tarrega & Cervera, Catalonia) invites Decor Sonore to offer a 2-days intensive workshop about sound in street performing arts.
The workshop: Performing within the soundscape
Where musics divide us, sound brings us together.
None among us, whether we are rich or poor, illiterate or learned, young or old, can break away from our sound environment. While each social group has its favorite music, and while the "other's music" is an undesirable "noise" which is sometimes cast away, even hatefully, the sound environment is a collective world, invisible but indisputable and perceived by all.
Décor Sonore's latest productions – 'The Kaleidophones' and 'The Cloudspeakers' (« Le Son qui vient du Ciel ») – invite us to listen to the soundscape as a potential composition, exploring the interactions between the « déjà-là » (existing sounds) and intentional sounds produced by musicians.
Providing both theoretical material and outdoor experiments, this workshop will introduce various ways to listen, share and play along with this sound environment, with the help of acoustic and electronic devices.
